In the Autumn Year 6, we have looked at Maafa in our History unit during the Autumn Term. The children learnt about Ancient African Kingdoms and the effects of slavery on these people. At the beginning of the school year, the children all enjoyed finding out about the importance of eating healthy in DT lessons then created their own homemade bread and pasta sauces. In Art, we looked at Impressionism and had a go at recreating Monet’s Japanese Footbridge painting. The children have looked at the circulatory system in great detail and learnt about what we eat and how much we exercise effects their bodies.
In Spring term, we will be looking at a Geography unit called Frozen Kingdoms where the children will be learning about the characteristics and features of polar regions, including the North and South Poles, and includes a detailed exploration of the environmental factors that shape and influence them. In science we are learning about electricity and how it works. In DT, we are looking at engineers and structures, then creating bridges out of different materials. After half term, the children will be going back to Art to look at Still Life drawing.
After the SATS, we begin High School transition. This includes transition weeks in the local high schools and transition units in English and Maths. We also have some exciting trips to celebrate their achievements. These include our residential to London and our fun day out at Pleasurewood Hills. At the end of the year, we celebrate by having a leaver’s assembly, a leaver’s festival and a water fight. We try to make the last year at junior school special so the children leave with lasting memories.
